Everyone deserves to be spoilt on their birthday. It’s an adorable way to celebrate the life of someone you love, their achievements, and remind them how much they mean to you. However, gift and surprise ideas don’t always come easy to us, even when we know our friends, partner, family, and colleagues well.
We have compiled a list of some unique, special ways you can spoil your loved ones on their birthday.
Plan a Surprise Dinner.
Choose their favourite restaurant, ask them to dress in their favourite outfit, and take them for a meal you know they will enjoy. If you are feeling creative, you could cook their favourite meal at home instead. You could even go the extra mile by sending them a handcrafted invitation to the event and setting the table with lighting and music. How special!
Send Flowers from Angel Delivery.
Angel Delivery’s new 'Flower Mail' service is an adorable twist on the classic floral bouquet gift. Featuring bright and fresh locally sourced flowers with gorgeous packaging, these bundles can be delivered straight to your loved one’s door. This new flower delivery nz offers a range of birthday packages and customisable options so you can pair goodies, such as cake and a chocolate tablet, with your flowers. Add a complimentary custom handwritten birthday card for that extra personal touch.
Mini Road Trip.
With music blasting, takeaway coffees in the cup holders, and the open road ahead, surprising your loved one with a mini day road trip to a beach, park, or town, is an amazing way to spend quality time together. By giving them your undivided time, on the road, and in a special location, you will help remind your loved one how much they mean to you.
A Compliment Jar.
This is a gift for the lovers of DIY gifts and words of affirmation. Grab a cute mason jar, and some post-it notes or slips of paper. On each one, write a little note to your loved one. That could include compliments, or reasons you love them, special memories together, something you are proud of them for. Whenever they need a pick-me-up, they can reach in, and pull out one of your little messages.
Wine and Cheese Tasting Party.
Grab a couple of different wines. Choose a variety of cheeses. Arrange the cheese on a nice charcuterie board along with some other nibbles like salami, olives, dark chocolates, berries, crisps. Take the time to sample each cheese and wine as you listen to their favourite playlist in the background and catch up!
Write a Love Letter.
A timeless classic. This romantic, touching gift will be forever treasured by your loved one. These are great as you can change the tone, and the content, to suit the receiver, whether that be a friend, partner, or colleague. This is a great way to tell them all the things you love and appreciate about them!
